Dems unveil bill to block Trump Muslim ban
by Cristina Marcos
House Democrats unveiled legislation on Wednesday that would prevent Donald Trump from implementing his proposed ban on Muslims entering the U.S. if elected president.
Rep. Don Beyer's (D-Va.) bill, introduced a week after Trump became the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, prohibits denying admission to immigrants, refugees and tourists based on religion or lack of religious beliefs.
"Quite simply, a religious-based immigration travel ban would betray the promise of freedom that gave birth to our country and would hurt our national interest," Beyer said at a Capitol Hill press conference.
